Welcome to the ERIN website.
ERIN is a consortium of specialist organisations and networks that provide support services to the Voluntary and Community Sector (VCS) in the East of England. Our website aims to make access to specialist information, best practice and resources easier for the VCS in our region. Themes covered reflect ERIN members’ knowledge and expertise and complement the wealth of information already provided by COVER.
Behind the acronym: introducing ERIN
Together ERIN members demonstrate the diversity of the VCS as their area of expertise and communities of interest extend from Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) to older people’s issues; and from rural communities and faith-based groups to people with disabilities. The list of ERIN members can be accessed here. For more information about ERIN, please contact COVER, ERIN's lead body, at

From August 2012 onwards...

The FERI project ended in August 2012. The final evaluation of the project can be accessed here.
